Kathmandu May 06,2012: Shristi Shrestha was crowned the Miss Nepal 2012, with Nagma Shrestha as the 1 runner up and Subekshya Khadka as the second runner up. In this bid of beauty and intelligence of celebrating womanhood, 17 participants had participated the contest who were selected in rounds of rigorous process from all over Nepal.
This is the 18th edition of its practice where the winners represent Nepal in prestigious Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Earth respectively. From the location to the malfunctioning of the mic, Miss Nepal was a program that seemed unmanaged and un-scrutinized. With such reputation the host had to face numerous problems due to mic malfunctioning which was very disheartening. Likes such, the stage and the apparatus were not arranged and aligned properly blocking the view.
Getting back to the program the performances were also underrated, The step-up Dance group’s performance was a teaser to the leave of bad performance where the women’s performance was reluctantly good than the men’s. The choreography was weak and the dancers slipped there moves. Looking at the name and fame of the pageant the level of competency shown by the dance group was not effective. Then, came the trio Ramond shrestha, Vineet shrestha and a woman singer for performance Ramond shrestha, Vineet shrestha and a woman singer. The malfunctioning of the mic hindered their performance and god knows what they did and what they wanted to do?
Miss Nepal certainly needs a professional touch to its existence where lack of effective monitoring and management resulted in its ineffectiveness. The organizers should further move ahead with a good spirit in making it the best as it represents the best of what we have to offer.
